I cannot speak for all women (some of us are idiots too), but when I say "NO" I mean NO!

In my house (raising the boys) it meant "If you are good....it is a yes" Course many times they'd mess up and it was a NO.
But the younger one (when he was perhaps five) put a positive spin on it. One time the older one was asking me about something and I said, "We'll have to see" The younger one piped up: "That usually means a yes!" (i was laughing privately)

Good post, Julie.

When a parent says "we'll see" - that means "NO." At least it did in my house.

faint No means NO. Yes might happen, however, not when you hear, "No!". highfive

Yes, Carl NO means NO and YES means YES. very clear biggrin For all types of relationships! Now between fathers and daughters (mine in particular) when he said NO it meant to my sis and I "maybe"...if I bug him enough it will be a yes :) But don't feel too sorry for him because he learned not to say NO to us he just said "tomorrow, daughter, tomorrow" ...we could never argue with that!

When I say yes, I mean YES! I try to make my words reflect who I am.

Some security expert I think on "Oprah" made an interesting comment:

When a man says "no" it's the end of the conversation. When a woman says "no" it's the beginning of a negotiation.

No truer words were ever spoken!

Hi Carl,

At first I thought this was a joke or something, but now I am wondering to what are we saying no or yes to? You mean for anything?

Could you please give some examples?
